Wilmington, DE -- August 25, 2007

Reading Wind Chill Factor, by Thomas Gifford. He likes mystery, suspense, Sci Fi, horror. Authors like Jeff Long, the book The Intruders, by Michael Marshall Smith.

One of his favorite books is The Things They Carried, by Tim O'Brien. He’s a Vietnam vet. His daughters just read it--they are 17 and 14. Both of them read it. They’d rather read than anything.

A book that’s helped him understand people better--Queen Bees and Wannabes, by Rosalind Wiseman. It helped him understand pressures on young teenage women, why they seem insane.

His own book—it'd be about the differences between then and now, when there used to be a greater sense of community, when everything wasn’t so materialistic, when it wasn’t so every man for himself.
